Angelina Jolie is all set to terrify small children and inspire cheekbone-envy across the world with her star turn as the villainous Maleficent in the upcoming movie. But at a press conference for the film, the actress revealed she’s planning to slowly move acting to the backburner.

"I've had a wonderful career and I'm happy to have had all those opportunities to tell stories and work for as long as I have," Angelina said. "But I'm able to be selective and I would like to focus more on writing and directing; and above all I would like to focus more on my work with the UN and with PSVI [the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative]."
